I love my Fiji Rock (which I believe came from Walt Smith). You will not get the additional lifeforms you will get from aquacultured Florida rock but within a few months you should have tons of coralline and pods. I was happy not to have to deal with dreaded mantis shrimp.

99% of the Fiji rock in tyhe trade is from Walt smith he is one of a very few distributors/importers of rock. It is good rock but so iss liverocks.com i would do a 50/50 mix if it were me!

I have seen the liverocks.com stuff and will say it is very nice!! The Fiji is kind of a crap shoot since it comes in transshipped and may sit in a warehouse out of water for days or weeks!
